Unlike other botnet-spotting products, SecureCloud isn't an application that you load on your PC, but is sold as software-as-a-service, with the application effectively being offered as online rentware.
Unfortunately for PC Internetters, whilst this approach is a lot better than installing a client on a Windows machine, Trend appears to be only flogging the service through third-party Web sites and ISPs.
The pricing, however, is on a par with Cloudmark's ISP service at a reported nine cents per user per day, although Trend claims that SecureCloud can tackle spam, as well as deliver real-time updates to
routers and network systems.
I suspect that you'll see Cloudmark and other online-based software client services like KeConnect, enhancing their systems to support anti-botnet technology in the not-too-distant future.
And, as I've said before, I think you will see more of these software-as-a-service subscription IT security products being offered as a real alternative to the likes of Norton Internet Security and other desktop memory-hogging applications...
